Best Form Oil That Can Be Found On A Sunday?


Had a few pallets of forms dropped off after loaning them out......they forgot to oil them before stacking.

They need to be re-stacked and oiled before I store them for the winter (all steel forms).

I'm thinking the cheap 5 gallon jug of UDT or hydraulic fluid from Tractor Supply, not sure if it would stick as well as form oil though.

Any other ideas for something I can grab tomorrow that will work okay?

Tread lightly, you are in OSHA big fine land....<50,000.00$ fine

use a biodegradable product, some cheap law breakers would refill the bucket with a blend of used hydraulic oil and ~10 diesel/kerosene thinner...

used to use it when legal on my mixers and shovels, wheel barrows, etc...it would soften STOCK Stone mixer paddles, I just started to cut my own out of oil resistant rubber.

I have always used diesel. And a sprayer...during use and for storage. I suppose if you wanted to be really sure, cut some old motor or hydraulic oil in. 3 to 1, 4 to 1....

I liberally diesel my wooden forms also...and they don't rust!

Which I find odd, because every type of form oil I've bought has both solvents and petroleum distillates on the MSDS sheets, although some do stink a lot less than others.

I woke up to snow this morning, so I might just say screw it and wait until tomorrow, supplier opens at 7.
